Easton Corbin Launches Promotional Tour in a Clock Tower
It’s time for new single “Clockwork.”
Easton Corbin played one of the most unique gigs of his career to date on Friday night (Jan. 24) in Baltimore. To help promote his new single, “Clockwork,” the young traditionalist gave a quick show for radio winners (in conjunction with WPOC) at—wait for it—a century-old clock tower in Charm City.
The 16-story Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower still has a functioning clock, and primarily houses art studios. Approximately 40 contest winners from WPOC were chosen to see Easton’s performance, which took place in a tiny room in southwestern corner of the building. Guests enjoyed “clock”-tails and catering on the street level foyer that provided some respite from the sub-freezing temperatures.
Easton, looking not particularly fazed by the cold in jeans and a green button-up, joined a pared-down version of his band for a mostly acoustic set staged between two wings of chairs left and right.
“We are close in here, I tell you what!” Easton addressed the crowd. “But that’s what country music is all about.” With that, he played his debut single “A Little More Country Than That,” and followed it up with a slew of new tunes: “Be My Love Song,” “Just Add Water” and the catchy “Clockwork,” which is about a guy who gets his heart broken by the same woman at the same time every week.
“I’m very, very excited to be releasing this to radio,” said Easton. The station in Baltimore is already playing it, so perhaps everyone else will catch on soon.
Easton closed the set with his hit “Roll With It,” and took time to take pictures with enthusiastic fans after the set. The guests and Easton all had a chance to tour the 15th-floor clock room and learn about the singular building’s history.
“Well done finding one of the coolest buildings in Baltimore for this event,” said one of the tower employees as the elevator carried a group back to the lobby.
Well done, indeed.
